Lights, Cancer, Action
Many of us in the blogosphere have captured our breast cancer journeys in words, but imagine if a documentary was made of your experience. The Breast Cancer Diaries had its world premiere last month at the SilverDocs AFI Film Festival in Washington, D.C. According to producer and breast cancer survivor, Ann Murray Paige, whose experience is documented in the film, “Our hope is to give hope to the people who surround those diagnosed with breast cancer: to offer them insights on how to help, how to be a friend, and what it's 'like' to have cancer at a young age, with so much to live for."

I’m not sure why, but I have requested a DVD and one day when I feel the desire I know it will be a cathartic experience to view it. However, more importantly, when another friend asks me what he or she can do for a friend or family member just diagnosed with breast cancer (because it happens more often than I ever imagined it would), I will loan out this documentary so that my friend can see what is in store and determine how best to be part of the healing journey.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
